He will yet fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with shouts of joy. Job 8:21
Almost thirty-eight years ago, we celebrated the arrival of our first precious bundle. Our tiny, sweet boy should have come with this note attached to his little bottom:
“Please handle with care. There will be love and smiles and sunshine. But there will also be pain and storms and sorrows beyond your understanding. I know them all, My children, and I will see you through each and every one ~ for I am the answer to every circumstance in your life. Never give up, but seek Me always.”
You will seek Me and find Me when you seek Me with all your heart. Jeremiah 19:13
Instead of a birthday celebration, we will go to our son’s grave and change his floral bouquet. Not fun. Not fair. But some day soon, it won’t matter anymore. We will have forever in eternity to celebrate birthdays together.
